25 Pours of Christmas (Pour 4): Shaw Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Shaw Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2011 Producer: Shaw Vineyard & Winery Region: Seneca Lake AVA, Finger Lakes AVA, New York, USA Price: $18 Vintage: 2011 Varietals: 100% Sauvignon Blanc ABV: 13% Virginia Pour House Notes: Notes of citrus and grass lead the nose with bright acidity shining on the palate adding nuances of honeysuckle up front followed closely by crisp, white peach and hints of lemongrass. A creamy palate texture and a smooth finish with just a touch of zest towards the back palate concludes New York State white gem.

This would be perfect for a traditional Italian Christmas Eve Feast of the Seven Fishes.   Shaw Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2011 Producer: Shaw Vineyard & Winery Region: Seneca Lake AVA, Finger Lakes AVA, New York, USA Price: $18 Vintage: 2011 Varietals: 100% Sauvignon …
